Kelly Benefits Adds Heroes to Bone Marrow Donor Registry

Sparks, MD – On Wednesday, April 24, 2019, Kelly & Associates Insurance Group (KELLY) partnered with the Baltimore-based non-profit There Goes My Hero to host an onsite bone marrow donor registration drive at its Sparks, Maryland headquarters.

With a simple cheek swab, more than 20 KELLY employees were added as potential donors to the national registry, one that is in constant need of members to meet the growing number of patients with blood disorders and cancers who need a bone marrow transplant to survive.

There Goes My Hero was founded in 2009 by Erik Sauer following an acute myeloid leukemia diagnosis and corresponding bone marrow transplant. There Goes My Hero has added over 20,000 donors to the national bone marrow registry, which has resulted in nearly 30 life-saving donations to patients in need.
